We caught up with Sens prospect Vincent Dunn after this morning's skate to talk his assignment to the Binghamton Senators, competing in the 2008 Sens Junior Skills Challenge and more...
On being disappointed about being assigned to Binghamton today:
Disappointed? No. I was expecting it. Of course I thing every player wants to stay here as long as they can. It's not disappointing and I'm ready to go there and play hockey.
On his next steps:
I've got to show these guys that I understand some things happened last year and I've got to show what I can do on the ice. I know what I can and can not do and I'm pretty confident skills. I'll show them how I can play hockey.
On facing the Carleton Ravens tonight as a member of the Binghamton Senators:
We don't know a lot about them but I think it's just another hockey game and we've just got to play our way. If we do that I think, with the level of skill we have here, I think we might win the game. It's all about winning and that's what we want to do tonight.
On his finish to last year's season:
Last year is last year and I don't really want to talk about it anymore. It's behind me, I'm in great shape and I'm ready for this upcoming season. I don't think I'll make the same errors I did last year.

On participating in the Sens Junior Skills Challenge:
I was here in 2008 and it was a great experience. I got to shoot on the targets in the net and back then I was more of a sniper than I am right now (laughs). It's been a long time but I think I hit 4 targets in 6 shots.
On being drafted and a part of the Senators organization years after the Sens Junior Skills Challenge:
I have a picture on my phone with Neiler, Alfie and Luke. They were all playing back then. It's pretty funny now to see those guys coaching me and showing me how things in the NHL work. I was there with them on the ice almost 10 years ago. It's pretty funny.
